sometimes after a day of despondently plugging numbers into a calculator, i like to look at extravagantly expensive and beautiful things that i definitely won't be buying.
one of my favorite online baby shops is fawn and forest, primarily because they carry wonderful handmade items from wonderful artists like sian keegan and tiny warbler. but honestly, i can't afford ninety percent of what they carry.
how do you stay true to your design sensibilities when all the lovely things for the baby are so expensive? in an ideal world, matthew the architect would take up woodworking among other things (like building me a house in maine). not to mention, i've heard that diffusion furniture lines at target and walmart are shoddily constructed and have strong chemical smells. for now, i think we're leaning towards ikea with a dash of flea market repurposing.
here's what i would include in my fantasy nursery (which is also in my fantasy three-bedroom apartment):
offi nest crib, $2,499
kalon studios ioline changing trunk, $740
